I have recently coverted from ic glow engines to electric due to a house move and an electric only club. I have found that the Turnigy G46 on a 4s 5000mah Lipo with a 12x8 prop is a good combination for the 46 equivalent at a reasonable pricing. This produces a power output of approximately 620Watts at 42Amps peak. I have tended to run a 80A ESC. I think a 5s would get you close to the 52 sized equivalent and both ESC and motor should handle that. These specs should at least give you a baseline to compare with other motors and setups.

Hope that helps.
